Michael Strong Card of the Day - Wednesday

Here is my card for Wednesday.  I made the card with Crumb Cake and Bashful Blue Stampin Up! cardstock.  Also used Stampin Up! Crumb Cake Taffeta ribbon and crochet ribbon.  The BB cardstock in the background was sponged with Tim Holtz Salty Ocean to match the "stamps".  I stamped Mike's Cloisonné Silhouette Panels (the butterfly one) in CC on the background and in Salty Ocean on BB for the "stamps".  The butterflies are a die from Stampin Up! as are the punches (for the "stamps" and for the salutation) and stamp (from "Watercolor Trio") for the salutation.  The butterflies are Pretty in Pink Stampin Up! cardstock that are sponged with Tim Holtz Pickled Raspberry.  I also used Tim Holtz Tea Dye to stamp the "Birthday wishes", the speckles on the background and some sponging.

I didn't quite know what the look I wanted was so I took pictures of several different arrangements. 







In the end I decided to go with this one:
